Umpires needed…which means a great opportunity for YOU !
We can teach it…..you can learn it
UMPIRE CLASSES - 2020
Not only do we teach baseball & softball, but we also teach the art of UMPIRING. Bulldog Umpiring Classes are open to both male & female, adults & youth (minimum age 13 thru 60),
We offer three options of training to prepare you for this season:
UMPIRING 100 – Pinto Games (age 7 & 8) & 8u softball games only:
This is a very basic overview of umpiring our younger games.
Calling balls & strikes, fair/foul, safe/out, proper positioning, and
some basic rule knowledge. We need a substantial amount of help staffing umpires at this level. Adults and Bulldog youth age 13 & up both male & female are welcome & encouraged to take this class. Umpires are paid, set their own schedule, & we supply equipment. This class is a single 2 hour session….see schedule at bottom of page.
UMPIRING 101 – We have taught this class for over 20 years! A detailed introduction to
umpiring youth baseball (Pinto & Mustang) & softball (8u & 10u). 3 separate sessions of classroom rule, videos & on-field practice will prepare you to start umpiring this April. Each session covers different topics. Age 13 & older as well as adults of all ages, both male & female are welcome to attend. Umpires are paid, set their own schedule & we supply equipment. Some of our class "graduates" continue on to umpire high school and even college level. If you have the interest, we can help you advance.
New umpires attending the 101 Class are required to attend all 3 sessions
Returning umpires must attend the 101 session on March 29, but are welcome and encouraged to retake the first two sessions for review.
UMPIRING 201- For umpires with at least one full year experience. In this single 2 hour
class session, we cover balks & go deeper into selected rules. This class is for those
who want to umpire older levels of play. (Bronco, Pony, Colt, &12u,14u,18u softball)
All sessions are held at the Vogt Bldg -6527 W 171st St (dark brown bldg. next to football field)
